In any case, winter is evident and this is the time to bird in northern israel, especially the Hula valley area and Beit shean valley. Have been birding in those sites quite a lot recently.
Many birds are out there , woth mentioning the rare ones: Demoiselle crane and Barnacle Goose which were spoted in the hula area.
A rare visitor, wallcreeper, was seen in southern israel in Ein ovdat vadi- what a great bird to see.....
Go out birding, but dont forget to wear warm clothes.
